WATCH: Even Marriage-Equality Opponents Don’t Believe The Bull They’re Shoveling

Opponents of same-sex marriage always say it threatened so-called “traditional” marriages between men and women. But when ThinkProgress asked attendees at an anti-equality rally in Washington, DC, on Tuesday if the the passage of marriage equality in states like Massachusetts has impacted their lives.

Surprisingly, no one they spoke to was on the verge of divorce. One guy said it’s even brought him and his wife together—they have a shared hatred to bond over.

Even Prop 8 defender Charles Cooper can’t explain why gay marriage threatens straight marriages—and he’s arguing before the Supreme Court.

    These people are afraid and don’t even know what it is they’re afraid of.

    @LadyL: They’re also stupid & don’t know it.

  • 2eo

    @Joetx: They are stupid and poorly educated and they must fight for a world where their children are poorly educated and stupid.

    It’s very simple, if you have a reasonable person, with even mediocre intelligence and a smidgen of world knowledge it is literally impossible to not be pro marriage equality, there is not a single argument against it that stands up to even the paper-thinnest of attack.

    What Jesus said and What the Christian Lunatic Fringe Hears.
    By Robert De Filippis

    According to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, “The number of Americans who do not identify with any religion continues to grow at a rapid pace. One-fifth of the U.S. public — and a third of adults under 30 — are religiously unaffiliated today, the highest percentages ever in Pew Research Center polling.

    So what’s going on in Christendom? Valerie Tarico, gives us something to think about in her article on on September 26, 2012 titled, “Why Do the Craziest Religious People Get the Most Attention? “There’s no question that religion can have some ugly moral and social consequences. The homophobic and misogynist attitudes of many American Evangelicals come straight out their sacred texts.[“] The fact is, putting God’s name on Iron Age morality contributes to Iron Age behavior.”

    I believe the all sentences BEFORE the last sentence support the final sentence 100%:

    “The fact is, putting God’s name on Iron Age morality contributes to Iron Age behavior.”.”
